There was the Keystone Corner--a SF jazz club. I believe it was the first. Then the Keystone Berkeley, which was certainly open by '73, if not earlier. Keystone Palo Alto may have opened in '78--not sure--for sure shows in '79. The Stone in North beach was the final venue, it opened '79 or '80. Not sure if there was a connection between the Keystone Corner and the other three--but the other three were all operated by Bobby Corona and Freddie ??? (his last name escapes me). The Stone wasn't just a metal club. Lots of punk, new wave, rock as well. Many a great night at the Keystones for me--and not just JGB...

FYI:
Keystone Time Machine

Also, I heard not long ago that Bobby Corona was murdered in recent years... but I haven't been able to find any supporting news reports about it.

Bobby Corona is an investment Broker with a major firm in the South Bay. I am sad to say that his Father Robert "Big Bob" Corona took his own life in the parking lot of the Shoreline Concert Venue in perhaps the 3rd quarter of 2006. Big Bob was a great person and he gave many entertainers a chance to perform at "good" clubs.
